A tea party set can enhance your tea experience and your get-togethers. Typically, a "tea party set" refers to English-style tea, and therefore an English-style set. Some common elements of a tea party set are:

  1. Teapot: A teapot is an essential part of a tea party set. It is used to brew and serve the tea. Teapots come in various sizes, shapes, and materials, such as ceramic, porcelain, or glass.

  2. Tea Cups and Saucers: Tea cups and saucers are used to serve individual portions of tea to the guests. They are often matching sets made from china or porcelain, and may feature decorative patterns or designs.

  3. Sugar Bowl: A sugar bowl is used to hold sugar or sweeteners for guests who prefer to add sweetness to their tea. It is often accompanied by a small spoon for scooping sugar.

  4. Creamer: A creamer or milk jug is used to hold and serve milk or cream to guests who prefer to lighten their tea. It can be a small pitcher or container with a handle.

  5. Tea Plates: Tea plates, also known as side plates, are small plates used to hold small snacks or treats that accompany the tea, such as cookies, scones, or sandwiches.

  6. Tea Strainer: A tea strainer is a device used to strain loose tea leaves from the teapot before pouring tea into cups. It ensures a smooth tea-drinking experience by preventing loose tea leaves from entering the cups.

  7. Tea Tray: A tea tray is a serving tray used to carry and present the tea set to guests. It can be a decorative tray that complements the overall theme or style of the tea party.

  8. Teaspoons and Stirrers: Teaspoons are essential for stirring tea and adding sugar or milk. Stirrers, such as small swizzle sticks or spoons, can also be provided for guests to mix their tea if desired.

  9. Decorative Accessories: Some tea party sets may include additional decorative elements like a cake stand, floral arrangements, decorative teapot warmers, or tea cozies to enhance the visual appeal of the setup.

These are common components found in a tea party set, but the exact items may vary based on personal preference, the size of the gathering, and the formality of the event.
